"Coruscant remains under Imperial control, but the fleeing loyalist armadas have ceded the rest of their territory to us. That leaves the warlords and opportunists isolated; eliminating the last of them will take time, but few remain a serious threat."
―Gial Ackbar, to the rest of the New Republic High Command[1]

The Chrenthoan Abyss was an area in the galaxy which was controlled by the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War.[1] In 5 ABY,[2] after much of the Empire's territory had been lost to the New Republic, an Imperial presence remained in the Chrenthoan Abyss. The area was marked as one of the largest territories occupied by Imperial warlords and opportunists, alongside the Faultheen sector and the Anoat sector, on a holographic map displayed during a New Republic High Command meeting. In that meeting, Admiral Gial Ackbar claimed that territories like the Chrenthoan Abyss were isolated, with only a few posing a serious threat to the New Republic.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The Chrenthoan Abyss appeared in a hologram in the 2021 novel Victory's Price, the third installment of the Star Wars: Alphabet Squadron trilogy which was written by Alexander Freed.[1]

Notes and references[]

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 Victory's Price
  2. Victory's Price begins eleven months after the Battle of Endor, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 4 ABY, and features the Battle of Jakku, which Galactic Atlas in turn places in 5 ABY. Since Before the Awakening establishes that Kes Dameron and Shara Bey moved to Yavin 4 around six months after the Battle of Endor and Galactic Atlas dates their move to 5 ABY, Victory's Price must therefore be set in 5 ABY. Furthermore, since the appearance of the Chrenthoan Abyss in Victory's Price occurs prior to the Battle of Jakku, it must also have taken place that year.
